This is so true. Many people say that we deserve to be loved, but that is not true. We are sinners! We deserve nothing, because we were children of wrath and hated Christ. Butcause he first loved us we are now acceptable in his sight. Praise Him.
Forgiveness doesn't excuse their behavior. Forgiveness prevents their behavior from destroying your heart. Deciding not to forgive hurts not only the other person but you as well. Not learning to forgive hardens the heart and makes shallow the soul.
